Kennedy Fox Box: This is Dangerous

When I found out that I had made into the Kennedy Fox Instafam in time for the This is Dangerous release I just about died! Logan and Kayla’s story is the one I have been waiting for. Kayla’s quirky must-love-donuts-and-dogs attitude with Logan’s mysterious past combine’s for one amazing story and one hell of a cliffhanger ending. If you haven’t read it yet, don’t fret! The conclusion to the entire Checkmate series wraps up on September 12th in Checkmate: This is Beautiful. A mere 49 days. (Who’s counting?)

Not only are K&F mystery romance writers extraordinaire, they also curate one of the absolute best book boxes I have ever had the pleasure to receive. These boxes are geared towards each duet and carry many items that not only pertain to the characters and stories but are always great quality and of actual use. Keep reading below to see the contents of the Checkmate: This is Dangerous box!

OwlCrate was created to share the joy of reading with the world. We believe in the importance of literature, and the magic of the written word.

Our manifesto:
1) No one is too old to read YA.

2) We will not be ashamed of our TBR piles.

3) It’s okay to fall in love with fictional characters.

4) The book is always better than the movie (but the movies are fun too!).

5) Books have the ability to change our world.

Fantasy And Sci-Fi Books: April Box

The April Box theme is Aliens, Aliens, Aliens. I love a great Aliens story! After all, once you are out in the ‘verse, who isn’t an alien?

For those of you who haven’t heard about Fantasy and Sci-Fi Book subscription box, it is a monthly subscription box that sends a new release YA Sci-fi or Fantasy book with 3 or more related items, some of which are custom made for theme of the month. It is fabulously curated by Theresa and her husband who share our geeky love of the Sci-Fi & Fantasy genre.

Fantasy and SciFi logo
 From Theresa: My Husband and I started this business to share our love of books with the world. While we love many types of books, we have a special place in our heart for anything Fantasy and Science Fiction related. We also love subscription boxes. However, we noticed that some subscription boxes send items that are not worth the money or not useful.We wanted the box we sent to our readers to be special. We wanted the items to be exciting, useful and definitely worth the money.

We carefully pick the book. We painstakingly pick the items that go with the book. Some items we ship will be specially made just for our readers. Some readers may be hesitant to order a subscription book box because they may not like the genre of book they get their box. We only send Fantasy or Sci-fi books so readers will know EXACTLY what type of book they are getting. However, the reader will still have the surprise of not knowing which book or what awesomely fun items they are receiving.

We are readers, collectors, and fans
We love books! And toys! As fans, we felt the need for a holistic box that would cater to both male and female, young and adult. Thus, The Monthly Prophet Box was born. We aim to deliver toys, exclusive shirts, and quality bookish pieces. This box will focus mostly on fantasy, fairy tales, and science fiction stories that may not be as mainstream as other genres, but therefore highly limited.
We encourage reading and freeing the imagination through a focus on bookish pieces, and hope you enjoy the collections we prepared for you.

Thank you for helping us share the joy of reading!
